Friday Relief

22 Jun

 

Today is the last day of school for a lot of kids across the country.  The last day of school always had a special energy to it, as the sun was usually shining, everyone at school had mentally checked out several days earlier, and the long, hazy days of Do What I Want summer are literally hours away.  We can remember several Last Days of School that included 3pm beer bongs in the park.  It’s that kind of day.

Even if you’re no longer in school and have moved on to the working world, there’s no reason you can’t still celebrate the last day of school and the start of summer.  Yeah, you’ve got that pesky day job to worry about for the summer months, but you can still go into full-fledged Summer Mode after today, as if you were back in 7th grade again.  It’s all a state of mind.  Put sunscreen on every day, have some BLLs at lunch, take impromptu midweek road trips, stay out late in the hot nights.  Why not?  Start today by taking that briefcase and throwing it up in the air on your way out of the office.  Just like you’re emptying out the locker.

No movie has ever been able to capture the essence of this unofficial holiday  like Dazed and Confused does, so we offer it up here to help everyone celebrate.  While you’re at it, might as well just watch the whole movie.  It’s only one of the greatest ever made.  And, also, we reserve the right to name our upcoming holiday party “The OFFICIAL 4th of July Brouhaha.”
